                                                      HOW I CAME TO AMERICA
                                                                By Eligio Coppa
I left Naples for New York the 15th of February 1909.  The journey took 24 days.  The fare for the trip was 180 italian lire.I came from the Island of Ponza, from the Coppa family originally from Ischia, where they established their families.In 1914  I lived in Richwood, West Virginia, I received a letter from the Italian consulate saying to return to Italy or report to the United States army, because Italy and the United States were allied , I decided to return to Italy – because I had my fiancé Filomena Vitiello there.I got to Italy and got married August 3, 1914.After  3 weeks I was drafted into the  Italian army.,I am speaking about World War I.I was classified as a “mariner” and I was stationed on war ships, after 3 months of training  , at the same time I was an interpreter when we were together with the other ships from the United State.
